rottne, Kronoberg
22C / 72F
Total Time = 1h 16m 19s
Overall Rank = 15/49
Age Group = F
Age Group Rank = 3/20
Pre-race routine:

My home race, 7th Edition. I've done them all (except the first one when I misstook race nerves for a cold). Won it in 2018. Goal was to beat that time (1:16:28). I knew I was not going to win as there was a women I know signed up, whom I knew would be 10 minutes faster
Woke up at 7, walked to the site with dog to pick up my start kit (told my annual joke, "Oh yes, the dog is also racing, she runs faster than us all and she's a good swimmer. Terrible on
the bike though")
Came back around 9-ish

Event warmup:

My usual warm up: a little run, a little stretch, a little swim
  • 07m 14s
  • 400 meters
  • 01m 49s / 100 meters

Placed myself just behind that fast girl I know and benefited from her draft for a few seconds then she was gone. Found other feet though and managed to keep a good pace
My best time over 400m, over one minute better than 2018
Transition 1
  • 01m 3s

took a little while to get out of my wetsuit and it felt like a slow T1 but 5 seconds faster than 2018 and Gold Medal overall. Did I mention I am the Queen of T1?
What would you do differently?:

not sure what happened with the suit so I don't know
  • 39m 54s
  • 20 kms
  • 30.08 km/hr

according to plan (which is to average 30k/h).

a little slower than 2018 but no big deal (11 seconds)

Transition 2
  • 00m 50s

Felt like a slow T2 and it was, 5 seconds slower than 2018 and 7th time overall
What would you do differently?:

not sure.
  • 27m 18s
  • 5 kms
  • 05m 28s  min/km

Most pleased with the run, even if it was much slower than 2018 (45 seconds).

Got sight of a girl who passed me on the bike at around 3k into the run (just as I passed my house) and tried to catch up with her. I didn't catch her up but I didn't give up and ran the last 2k under 5 min/km.
